  9. Could you please advise: If I need to overstay only 2 days, is it worth applying for a short-term residency permit? or is it easier just to pay fine at the airport?

    1. Hello,

      It takes 1,5 months to get a residence permit, during this period of time you should stay in Turkey. For two days of overstaying, you can pay the fine at airport on your departure day, if it will be applied.
